    Hello all, man does anyone know where I can find this tire carrier ?

    Kind of looks like a Wilco offroad. but if you notice, it does not go into the receiver hitch.

    Looks like a custom job. They trimmed out a lot of the rear bumper. There should be a grill or a hook on each side next to the marker lights. Those are all gone. Here is a factory bumper for comparison.

    it almost looks like the swing arm that is on the Avid tire carrier rear bumper, just without the bumper.
    That is rather intriguing and I would also be interested in that

    Here are some old pictures I saved of the AVID RADIUS Expedition Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier

    The Avid tire carrier is centered and has a silver latch on the drivers side. It also conforms to the bumper and the vertical attachment point for the tire is much thicker.
    Also, it looks like it can be ordered now!!

    ya, that's been available for a couple weeks now, I just dont have $1,000+ for a bumper. I wish I did though, or that they would take payments, would totally get it and the matching front bumper if they did payments.

    Yep I do like that rear Avid bumper too. Just not ready to let go of a grand or take out my factory bumper w/ built in factory hitch.

    exactly. having to remove the factory hitch is kind of a deal breaker for me. Pay extra at the dealership for a hitch and have to throw it away for a different hitch. If they had a system that was just the tire carrier swing arm attached to the tow hook mounts then I'd be all over that.

    Nathaniel, what do you thing of the Wilco Hitch tire Carrier ? Just to me It seems to stick out too far. And it's almost as expensive as the Avid.

    I have mixed feelings about the carriers that attach to the tow hitch. Like you pointed out, that one sticks out quite a bit and I don't think I've seen any kind of hitch mounted carrier that didn't tip back and forth all the time because they never sit quite right. I'm hoping someone comes up with a tow hook mounted swing arm that keeps the original tow hitch. It should be possible to modify the AVID swing arm to do that but you'd have to be able to get one first, minus the bumper, and I'm pretty sure they probably wouldn't do that.
